Now it's just kind of painful to share!
If you saw it at the Goodwill, would you pass it by or consider it a candidate for a makeover?
For the longest time, I had an inspiration photo from Pottery Barn with white bedroom furniture from hanging over my bed. Yes, I'm very visual. The furniture was really so similar, I had to give it a shot. I mean seriously, what did I have to lose?
My husband's only question was, how was I getting it to the garage? We've been in this house for almost thirty years and I really don't even remember how the movers got this stuff in here. But since the entire upstairs was being painted and we were getting new carpet, I knew we could just paint it right in the bedroom - whew!
Only the headboard and the drawers had to be carried outside.
And thankfully, I had a fearless helper! Megan actually encouraged me to go for it from the very beginning.
The paint adhered beautifully and all that dark pine was becoming a distant memory!
Just when we finished, our painter was ready to paint the walls. Having the drawers out and the hutch off the dresser made his work a whole lot easier too. And no, I do not paint walls if I can possibly avoid it.
Okay, ready to see what it looks like?
(No pretty accessories till after the carpet arrives.)
Now I'm really loving the curves.
They've gone from dated Colonial to sweet Cottage Style!
I love the way the distressing brings out the details.
The hardware was replaced with pretty crystal button knobs and satin nickel cup pulls.
I'm not missing that eagle one little bit!
So there you have it, a pretty new Cottage style bedroom in the making! I think it has a beachy, coastal feel.
